Abstract:The aim of this study is to gain insight into the problem of desertification in Sudan, in particular regarding its impact on the Omdurman urban complex. After defining desertification, the author describes the Omdurman area, details the socioeconomic and political impacts of desertification, specifically the recent migrations and the settlement in Omdurman of displaced peoples or 'environmental refugees', and outlines strategies for rehabilitation and development. The author, manager for the rehabilitation of displaced peoples in the Omdurman area, derives his data mainly from visits, interviews, and fieldwork in December 1984.
